Hemp is not a mysterious substance, despite its reputation as a cure-all. There is hard science behind how hemp works, and why it works in dogs.
Hemp contains naturally occurring compounds called cannabinoids. There are over 140 known cannabinoids that have been identified in hemp and these cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system found in animals and in humans.

Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body and the brain and the different receptors affect different functions. Some cannabinoid receptors work on sensation, some affect mood and some on appetite. As cannabinoid receptors are found in the brain, organs, peripheral nervous system, connective tissue, glands and immune cells. The function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain a stable environment in the body and therefore it makes sense that cannabinoid receptors are present in so many different areas of the body and brain.
The cannabinoids found in hemp stimulates these receptors and can signal the body to build more cannabinoid receptors. This is why the ElleVet product may work better and better over time, as your dog’s body builds more receptors and promotes better results.

How should I store my oil?
ElleVet CBD+CBDA oil does not need to be refrigerated and should be stored in a cool, dark place – like a cabinet or shelf. Do not store it next to your stove or in direct sunlight.
What if my dog eats more they should?
Generally, side effects are minimal, even if your dog eats the whole bag or bottle. If they do eat more than recommended they may be sleepy and/or have soft stools. If your dog experiences any side effects or eats more than they should please feel free to call us or your veterinarian.
What is the strength / potency of your oil?
Our oil has 70 mg of cannabinoids per ml of oil. Approximately 90% of those cannabinoids are CBD and CBDA and the rest are smaller but important cannabinoids. There is a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes present in our oil, and they all work together to create the “entourage effect,” or synergistic effect, which makes our oil extraordinarily effective.
What does Proprietary Complete-Spectrum Cannabinoids Blend mean?
This means that the hemp we use is a strain developed specifically for us and grown just for us. No one else uses the same hemp we do and ours is the only hemp proven to work. Our oil is called complete spectrum because it contains all the cannabinoids and compounds available in the plant which all work together for the greatest effect.
How do I administer the oil?
ElleVet CBD+CBDA oil can be placed directly into your dogs mouth, onto their food or a treat, or placed inside a capsule (which are free to add to your order). Soft Gels are a great alternative if your dog does not like the taste or smell of the oil or you find it difficult to fill the capsules.
How often should my dog take the oil?
Based on our research on how dogs metabolize our product, twice a day dosing, everyday, is needed for the best effect. Spacing the dosing approximately 12 hours apart is ideal, and taking with food can improve absorption.
I have been using mobility oil for my dog but only see complete oil now, is mobility oil still available?
It is! We renamed the Mobility oil and now call it Complete. The reason for this is because the oil is so effective for stress and for many other issues, that the name Complete is more accurate.
